Edwards to post new online base helping agencies directory

directory
To compliment the webpage dedicated to all the base helping agencies, Team Edwards will start implementing an online directory listing all those agencies for personnel off-base and on-base June 1.

For off-base personnel, the directory will be located via the Edwards Air Force Base home page under the Base Helping Agencies Directory tab. For on-base personnel, the directory will appear as a 412th Test Wing icon at the bottom each Edwards government computer taskbar.

“Initially, with the IDS webpage, we wanted to provide an online resource for the base populace to seek information about the human services assistance,” said Kimberly Shirley, 412th Test Wing Sexual Assault Response coordinator. “By implementing this online directory, we’re providing an easier way for our Team Edwards community to access help when someone is in need – a one-stop shop to find information on all the helping agencies available from any computer.”

According to Shirley, the directory will contain a description of the helping agency, hours of operation and contact information.

“Not only will this tool save time and effort for leadership and supervisors who seek assistance for their people, but it will be an effective way for individuals seeking assistance to locate the proper helping agency directly,” added Nancy Koch-Castillo, 412th Test Wing Community Support coordinator.

For those not familiar with the function of the IDS, part of the IDS consists of a conglomerate of all the helping agencies on base, which include the Airman and Family Readiness Center, Equal Opportunity, Sexual Assault Response Coordinator, the Employee Assistance Program, the Military and Family Life Counseling Program, Mental Health, Family Advocacy, Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention and Treatment Program, the Health and Wellness Center, the Legal Office, Chaplain Services, Safety, and many more agencies.
